Paramount+ has teamed up with POPSUGAR to bring the iconic “Grease” diner, the Frosty Palace, to life in an exclusive two-day interactive experience in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 6 and Friday, April 7. The pop-up experience will celebrate the upcoming and highly anticipated Paramount+ original musical series GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES, which will feature the iconic diner, first seen on screen in the classic 1978 “Grease” film, throughout the first season.

The experience will also feature one-of-a-kind GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES branded merchandise giveaways, customized on-site so fans finally have the chance to join their favorite girl gang.
